Disney has enough money to afford at least twenty bombs like this, so it's not as if they're worried about it. They're probably pretty pissed off, though.

Every time Disney loses money on one film, they get it all back from releasing something else! Can someone say "Monsters University"!

OR re-releasing something in 3D. Almost 100% profit.

I guess this means Verbinski is dead to Disney.

He made three out of four Pirates films. They're probably going to give him another chance with a smaller budget.
If someone's in trouble with the Mouse House is Bruckheimer, he's been involved in lots of Disney's recent bombs.

So I guess this won't be a trilogy then.

But they made like "One billllion dollars"(channeling Dr. Evil) on The Avengers so I doubt they're hurting. ;)

This can happen if you trust the movie itself so little that you have to throw nearly 200 million dollars in advertising at it. I might have still seen this movie after knowing that the reviews weren't so great if I hadn't been bombarded with trailers for the thing before EVERY SINGLE other movie I've watched in theaters for the last half year at least. I'm tired of a movie I haven't seen. The same thing happened with Cowboys and Aliens.
